Color Image Transfer

Don't forget to stop by and Like my Facebook Page! DIY Vintage Chic.

You asked for it so here it is! YES, you can transfer color images.

A number of you have asked since I posted the Transfer Image to Wood tutorial if it's possible to transfer color images. I transferred the image above and was a little excited to see the results {which is why the edges are a little shredded}. Use the same process as you did in the Transfer Image to Wood with a black and white image. And remember to use a laser printer for your color image.
This pic is for my hubby!
I did notice on this pic that Will Farrell's nose was a little runny {get it?} but I'm not positive why it happened. I'll have to try a few more experiments to see if it happens again and why.

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Image transfer is always a fun project.. if not a little nerve wracking with its delicate nature. Thanks for linking up at Shabbilicious Friday Becca.

  4. love this tutorial--I've nominated you for a Leibster award for bloggers! Check out my post to read about it! Congrats on your blog! Keep up the great work!-aimee

  5. Would colors show up on a black painted surface?

    1. Probably if your image has lighter colors. You may want to test it out first.

  6. Is there any way to save a project which has paper that is obviously still there? This was my first attempt and i already put modge podge on it. could i possible sand it off???

    1. It'll take some work but possible. You can sand it off however if there's a finish (stain, paint, etc) on the wood it might need to be redone. Also depending on what your project looks like you can try this tip.
